Yao Ming’s Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks won their 6th game in a row a couple of days ago in Shanghai, beating the Foshan Draglions 95-88. As usual, Yao and his wife were in attendance.

The Sharks’ winning streak has pushed their record to 11-8 and has them tied with three other teams for the 8th seed in the playoffs if they were played today.

Unfortunately, one of the Sharks’ two allowed ex-pat players, Ryan Forehan Kelly, ruptured his Achilles tendon last week. But former Rocket Mike Harris picked up the slack, scoring 25 points and grabbing 14 boards.

The Sharks have signed Carl Landry’s brother, Marcus Landry, to replace Kelly. Landry arrived in Shanghai on Friday (see below).
